Basically, when push comes to shove,  it is one vote per company and you can see the list of companies in the WG member page. Sure it's a bit more complicated than that but typically, that's about how it ends up with W3C process.  Obviously the people casting theses votes are high influenced by the technical arguments and  many of them are interested in making sure W3C standards meet the needs of a broad industry and not just their companies needs. This is because broad industry usefulness is what is needed for a standard to succeed.
